"Call & Response: An exhibition of Works by Rene Shoemaker and Judy Bales" at Lyndon House Arts Center

Thursday, November 8, 2018

The Lyndon House Arts Center will host "Call & Response: Works by René Shoemaker and Judy Bales." A collaborative effort in silk, fiber and wearable art, René Shoemaker and Judy Bales explore a long tern inspirational friendship.  

According to Rene Schoemaker,  "Judy Bales has always been one of the fiber artists I most Admire, not only for her creativity and ability to use unusual materials to create beautiful work, but also for her kindness, attention, and friendship.  She inspires me, as an artist and a friend." 
"My friendship with René began when I met her in the Fabric Design Department. Mutual admiration and shared artistic goals, as well as simply enjoying each other's company, set us on a path of a friendship that has endured in spite of seeing each other only a handful of times in recent decades. This exhibit is a combination of deep connections combined with very different artistic approaches that results in our desire to bring our work together for Call and Response," states Judy Bales.

The exhibition is on display November 8, 2018 through January 12, 2019.  The exhibition is free and open to the public during regular gallery hours of Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 9:00 p.m., and Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.  The opening reception is scheduled for Thursday, November 8 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
